If you’ve suffered a neck injury at work, you’ll know just how painful and debilitating it can be.

In case you’re wondering about what could cause a neck injury in the workplace, we’re here to share some of the common causes of neck injuries with you.
What types of accidents could cause a neck injury?
Common causes of neck injuries at work could include:
- Slips, trips and falls – for example if you slip on a floor which has recently been cleaned (with no warning signs) and hit your head as you fall
- Objects falling from height, such as files falling off a shelf or somebody dropping something on you
- Falling off a ladder or from scaffolding
- Whiplash after a vehicle collision whilst driving for work
- Manual handling/lifting injuries caused by moving heavy objects without the proper equipment or training
If you’ve suffered a neck injury whilst at work and you believe somebody else is to blame – such as your employer or a colleague – then you could make a claim for compensation. You could find out right now how much compensation you could be entitled to by taking the 30-second test on our website. But bear in mind there is a three-year time limit in place for all personal injury claims, so don’t wait around too long or you could miss out.
